Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Windshield has swirls inside of glass. This causes poor visibility, especially at night. Alright during daylight. Has to go back to dealer according to glass co. Swirls are getting worse due to being more noticeable during the day.

The Mercury Sable has a serious safety defect in the design of the windshiel D. the front and rear windows leaves water on the windshield. The front window is particularily dangerous because when the windshield wippers it brings the water to the drivers side. At times you can not see out of the window. That minute the vision is blurred there could be an accident. I would like to know how many accidents there have been as a result of this design flaw. The rear window is not as bad because you can turn-on the rear defogger. I purchased a new set of wippers
